PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is an authentic literacy exercise using a non-fiction essay "Homeless" by Anna Quindlen. It was first published in Newsweek, so I feel it meets the new text complexity requirements! Students are asked to answer varying levels of comprehension questions based on Bloom's taxonomy. Ultimately, students will complete a writing prompt deciding whether they live in a "house" or a "home". The product addresses skills including: close reading, annotating, vocabulary development, short answer format, opinion questions, inference questions, and using evidence to support claims.

Note: I have used this in conjunction with the novel HOLES by Louis Sachar to help students dig deeper into the concept that the character Zero was homeless.
